Industry Interface

The department has an Industry Institute Partnership Cell (IIPC), sponsored by AICTE which takes up following activities :

  • Students are encouraged to take up Industry based Project works and Industry based internships. Some of the industries where students are doing their projects and internships are HAL, NAL, L & T, Kennametal, ISRO, Bosch, Toyota, etc.
  • Technical talks by industry experts are arranged for students and staff members
  • Industrial Visits are arranged for students
  • Training programmes and workshops are arranged for students in emerging fields like CAD/CAM/CAE and Advanced Materials
  • Consultancy and Product Development projects for industries are taken up
  • Industry Sponsored Projects are undertaken
  • The department has MOU with PEACE, DRDO, New Delhi to train the entire DRTC cadre of DRDO through technical skills upgradation programme. Ten batches of 30 DRDO personnel (each batch) have been trained.


The Centre of Competence for Automation Technologies is a joint initiative of BOSCH Rexorth with RVCE

  • This centre will focus on hands on training to the students and faculty members in the field of automation technologies.
  • Candidates after successful training will be offered a joint completion certificate by Bosch Rexorth and RVCE centre.


  • Demonstration by Bosch experts

Co-Curricular Activities and Extra-curricular activities

Several faculty members of the department are life members of Indian Society for Technical Education and Institute of Engineers.
YANTRA (students’ forum)

  • The official students’ forum of the department is "YANTRA”, which conducts seminars, workshops, and technical events to help the students improve their knowledge and develop leadership qualities.
  • Industrial visits for students are organized on a regular basis (ACE Designers, Mico Bosch, etc)
  • The students are encouraged to carry out innovative projects and participate in National and International Conferences. Some of the innovative projects carried out by students and for which financial assistance is provided by the college are :
  1. Project ASHWA – Design and Development of formula racing car
  2. Project Mini Baja – Design and Development of ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE
  3. Project Garuda Supermileage – Design and Development of fuel efficient car
  4. Project VYOMA –- Design and Development of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
  5. Project Chimera – Design and Development of plug-in hybrid car

Placements

  • The department has achieved a placement percentage of 97% in 2010, with focused placement training for its students. Pre-placement training is given to the students in the 2nd year itself, to prepare them for the placement interviews.
  • The companies visiting the college for selecting mechanical engineering students include : L & T Powai, L & T ECC, L & T Valdel, Kennametal, TCE, Mahindra & Mahindra, HCL Aerogroups, Schneider Electric, Shapoorji Pallonji, Ashok Leyland, Gujarat Gas, Mico Bosch, BEL, UB, Daikin Air conditioning, Honda Motors, Timken, GMR Group, GE, TCS, WIPRO, CTS, Infosys, etc. In 2010, 40 companies visited the campus for selection of students in the department.
